>             Fix For: 0.24.0, 0.23.1

> HDFS-2465 has some code which attempts to disable the "drop cache behind reads" functionality
when the reads are <256KB (eg HBase random access). But this check was missing in the {{close()}}
function, so it always drops cache behind reads regardless of the size of the read. This hurts
HBase random read performance when this patch is enabled.
